    When I try to install some updates (a security update and a plugin manager) I get an error saying I don't have the right permissions. When I try to repair disk permissions it doesn't move, just sits with the bar 1/8 or so full. Nothing in details but Verify permissions for "Macintosh HD".

    Hmmm... 20 minutes to verify. Ok, I guess it's working now but nothing showed up in details except complete. I'll still try repair.

    Yup.

    By the way, what's with all the black and white? April fools? I don't know I just got back from a trip.

    Huh, this doesn't make sense. I just went to my other admin account (made second, not the main one) and it works! Well, got to restart.
